Best Restaurants in Garland, TX

Monday, July 24th, 2017

When it’s summer in Texas, sometimes it’s just too darned hot to cook, right? At Barrett Motors in Garland, our service team was talking about just that, and began sharing their favorite local restaurants with each other. Knowing our customers probably feel the same way we do about being in a hot kitchen or at the backyard grill on a 100 degree day, we thought we’d share our list of top restaurants in Garland.

Tranky’s Tacos

This street taco favorite is at 2218 S. Jupiter Road and their gourmet tacos are worth the trip. We’ve tried Pollo, Fajita, Barbacoa and Carnitas, and they are all terrific. In fact, we think they should rename the place Tranky’s Taco Heaven! Even the Borracho beans are fantastic. The only thing better is the pricing—very inexpensive. No wonder it’s packed at lunch and dinner!

Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery

Brisket nachos, ribs, fried okra and the best mac and cheese in town—we can’t say enough about this place. Plus, you can get four pours of home-brewed brewskies for just $15. We especially like the Texas Shake, which is a creamy and hazy IPA. Located at 509 W. State St. in Garland, it’s a real find.

Babe’s Chicken Dinner House

If you live in Garland, you have to know about Babe’s, right? It’s probably the most famous restaurant we’ve got. Located at 1456 Belt Line Road, it’s busy from the moment they open until they close. Everyone at the table gets to order the meat of their choice—Fried Chicken, Fried Catfish, Chicken Fried Steak, Chicken Strips—then they bring out the sharable sides: mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, black eyed peas and white gravy. And the desserts? We are hooked on their banana pudding with meringue. Just forget about your diet and get in the car and go. You won’t regret it. (Just don’t tell your personal trainer!)
